Okay, let me start by saying I'm an izzone member. But shit needs to change. And today is a good starting point.
I get to the game an hour and 15 minutes before tip. Me and my friends started drinking around 1pm to prepare. Around 3 hours and 45 minutes to drink, should be okay right? But that's where shit goes wrong.
We get to the gates, and we are handed upper bowl tickets. What? We are here an hour and 15 minutes before tip and we have to go the upper bowl after camping out? Really? We camped out in 20 degree weather over night for what? To get to the game 3 hours early? Sober? WTF is wrong with this picture?
The geeks that run this bullshit say that they handed out 200 lower bowl tickets to upper bowl members that DID NOT camp out. THAT DID NOT drink before the game. They probably were the fucks wearing telletubies, banana suits, angry birds hats, camper orange, camper neon, hipster fucking beanies, whatever you want to call it. All for what? Oh, that's right. ATTENTION.
I'm sorry if this comes across as whiny but this is bullshit. Why do I camp out for the Izzone if I get sent to the upper bowl because these fucks show up to the first big game of the year just to get on ESPN.
Mind you, we were all wearing the default Izzone white shirt. Not trying to get attention, just to bring O$U hell. We still did that from the upper bowl, but I guarantee you, way more than the attention whore freshsman that went home instead of camping out. A senior who gets there an hour and 15 minutes before the effin game, who went to all the bullshit games like Arkansas Pine bluff, should be able to get lower bowl. Bottom line.
The Izzone geeks that run this, who probably had seats saved for them in the first row, told us to go talk to izzo. Really?
If the izzone wants to be one of the most intimidating sections in America, it's time to drown out the attention whores, and reward the fans who want to bring the other team hell.
This will probably get a negative response, but you can blame these rules for the attention whores who only show up for bigger games for the Izzone being #6 in ESPN and not #1.

Buy coca cola, pour out coke, put in booze, get in line before the teletubies. Drink coke, punch teletubies when they show up.

It's incredibly shitty to hand out so many lower bowl tickets than there are seats
I got in line 3 hours before tip. Didn't drink. But brought it strong all game. Since when should you get rewarded because you drank before the game? I agree, people in costumes are idiots. But just because I didn't take time to drink before the game, doesn't mean I am any less deserving of a spot in lower bowl.
The lottery has been in place for four years so far, this is the fifth. If you got an upper bowl ticket, it means that you were one of the last 200 people to show up. That puts you in the bottom 10% of the Izzone, and you're whining that a dedicated fan was screwed?
We want you to drink before the game. I agree this is BS and needs to be changed
This. Crotch the booze.
Also, what is wrong with assigned seating? That is the way it used to be when my sisters where there in 2001.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
You're like 4'2". We never even saw you.
Go talk to Izzo. Go down to his office tomorrow or monday. If you have to make a appointment do it.
There's no way he can think that was a strong showing by the Izzone today.
I bet you most of those Upper Bowlers weren't wearing costumes and camped out just the same as you.
did you say OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo oh wait a text.
I never heard one chant besides "stand up" , anyone claiming they brought it strong wel.....
Well you should prbly get there when the doors open 90 minutes before tip off, not 15 minutes later for what was the first marquee home game of the season

If you were at the game, you'd know it was very loud in there today

You are a jackass, were you at the game today? The Bres was rocking
the only thing that needs to be changed is your panties, hun.
We're there people that go there after you that got lower bowl seats?
We are not the same, I am a Spartan
Izzone sucks now.

Would have been a lot louder without the people that get lower bowl just because they get there early and want to get on ESPN. Fact.
If the doors open an hour and a half before the game, why would you get there 15 minutes after they open? Especially at the first big home game. What did you think would happen?
Just because you are a straight edge doesn't mean you should take it out on the people who like to grab a bucket at crunchys before the game
I thought that people that slept in a tent in Munn field over night in 20 degree weather would earn their spot in the lower bowl. Like they were told.
Yeah dude, I'm typically behind most of the things you post, and believe me I f***ing hate the SAF, we can SAF circle-jerk all day, but I think you are off-base here. I drank before the game, showed up hammered at 4:15 and thought to myself "shit, I guess I'll need to show up really early for IU, UM, Minnesota, etc," because the line was looooooooooooong. Yeah I'm sorry you had to sit up top but I don't really know what to say. If you are implying we should have assigned seats or not have it be free for all I completely disagree.
This is why sports are better on T.V.
Oh, I've learned my lesson. Guess I'll start drinking at 11 am next time and beat all the attention whores. Yeah.
